The panel is really beautiful, has a glass surface and it produces a good amount of power too.
Just using my 11W CLF table light, I was able to get almost 6v out of it.
Its too dark right now here in Finalnd to check the real power of this, but I'm pretty sure in direct summer sunlight it would produce the 12v 80mA easily.
The only bad thing it has are the little positive and negative tabs on the back, they are really fragile, so I suggest soldering some additional wire to them and taping the little tabs to safety as soon as possible.
The tabs wont last for long if you try to fiddle with them too much
Packaging was good, addition to the regular DX post bag, it was wrapped inside two big bubblewrap bags, that gave it at least 8 layers of protection.
Great little solar panel, 5v could come from indirect light, and 12v from a bright summer sun.
If you need 12v at all times, you have to get a bigger one.
